BAE Systems HAS Carried out successfully icts Power Operational Concept Demonstration (PowerOCD) for the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) at the British Army Training Unit in Kenya.
Using the company's Deployed energy management system (DEMS), the trails Confirmed that up to 30% fuel savings and maintenance cost can be Achieved at army bases using hand forward and the current defense business and respectivement generators.
The trials Were Conducted as a share of £ 1.5m Contract Awarded to the company by the MoD's Defence Equipment and Support (DE & S) technology delivery team.
DE & S technology delivery head Gary Jackson Said the trials Have Provided firm evidence of the potential for significant enhancement of operational energy efficiency.
"Given HAS PowerOCD us hard data from a realistic, representative operational environment in Kenya," Jackson added.
BAE Systems energy solutions and services Courtaux head Chris added:'' Our energy management system successfully integrated Within the Existing databases and well Stood Up to the challenges of a real-use environment. "
Operationally proven in the UK and Cyprus, the year features DEMS energy management system controls That generators, Maintains storage and intelligently marriages aussi demand to address Operational Requirements and energy use patterns.
Existing Developed using military equipment, the plug-and-go solution aussi able of accommodating business generators, as well as current and future fuel saving technologies, Such as solar power and wind energy.
The system functions by entre le Remaining connected generator and distribution system, Which loads a battery system controlled by the DEMS That console switches off the generator When charging is complete.
The batteries will then Provide power on demand, leading to Improved efficiency and savings in fuel and maintenance.
Enabling easy management in the battlefield or remote operation from MoD sites at home, the DEMS aussi suitable for all locations When power supply is not available from the main grid.
